For those seeking advice:I get loads of people asking me how to prepare for a job or get started in the design and visualization business and / or what schools to attend. I wish I could be more helpful.For those seeking advice:3 years ago in Personal More Like This
Something you need to understand is that I'm almost 51 years old. So, I have no contemporary schooling advice. All my formal schooling (late 70's early 80's) was completed well before PC's and digital art. I began my career with traditional media and all my digital skills are self taught. Therefore, I really have no idea in 2012, what the great digital art and design schools are and what the best path is for a young person interested in the trade. I'm not being a jerk, it's just that I'm not seeking a entry level job or looking for classes.
I will say that in this biz, it's more important what you can DO -vs- where you went to school. You can complete a curriculum and not learn a thing, and you can learn loads outside of a classroom. A strong portfolio speaks volumes. There are 15 year old
Hmmm... Interesting.So this morning I receive notification from a no-reply administrative account here at dA than one of my deviations has been removed in response to a DMCA copyright violation claim.Hmmm... Interesting.2 years ago in Personal More Like This
The artwork in dispute was amusingly enough my very first auto vexeI uploaded back in 2004. A very cartoony Orange Acura RSX, based partly on a die cast toy that I took my own photograph of. The resulting art looks very little like the toy car to begin with, and was produced by a toy manufacturer that seems to be no longer in business much less offering the product for sale.
So who's the entity with the beef? Honestly, I have no idea. They're not identified in the complaint at all. The defunct toy-maker? Acura? Jeez, I've no idea. Either way, it seems that 9 years after the fact, someone is zealously defending a design that neither of them fucking make any more.
The recourse is to dispute the claim, but the process of dispute puts all the onus on me. The process states: "Under the Digital Millennium Copyrigh

All Signs Point to Robitz

I believe in deviantART. Which is to more accurately say I believe in the concept and the reality of the deviantART community.
When in contemplation of the eternal wellspring that is the deviantART project and how it has become the engine keeping my heart and mind on a full burn as I strive to be an upstanding member of the community as well as a helpful architect and eager participant in the conversation -- my thoughts inevitably settle upon my attempts to define my concept of Gratitude.
